Callup List

The CALLUP list shows the order of all riders for a given race category and race date.

The CALLUP list will change for the each following race, based on the overall performance of the rider as the race season progresses.

The assures the faster riders in the category go off at the beginning of the wave. Slower riders can move up as they acquire the skills and endurance needed for a faster race.

The callup list is published to the Coaches on Thursday’s before the race weekend.  Each racer needs to know what wave they are racing in when they can report to Staging, which is staged by Waves.  Racing in the correct wave is required to log a correct time when the racer crosses the finish line.

  • As the Callup List is created, Bye weeks are taken into account, so a racer from a team in their bye-week will not be included in the Callup.
  • Racers with no race finishes for the season will not be included in the Callup List.
  • On site walk up registrants who are assigned a new number plate at a race will race at the back of the last wave as they were not identified as racing in time to be included for that race.
Riders at the front are the leaders of their category, until another rider gets more points, then they assume the leader position.
This is very tricky at the beginning of the season ,merging points from last year’s performance with early season points from this season until everyone has races, and bye weeks make it somewhat complicated.
When there is a large field, or more than 50 riders registered, the category may be broken into waves of about equal size.  A Wave usually starts 1 minute after the previous wave.  The timing group accounts for what wave the rider is in, in order to give the rider crossing the finish line a correct time.  It is important that a rider in a large field know their wave, so they start in the right wave, with the right start time.
A rider can refuse their callup – they then go to the back of the callup group.
